Level 4 Newsletter Term 4 Week 1


Learning and Teaching

In Year 5/6 We Are Learning To....

READING: We are visualising the texts we read by deciphering descriptive and figurative language to create a movie in our mind including the smell, feel, sounds and look of the setting .

WRITING: We are revisiting recounts to begin the term. We are focusing on the structure of recounts and the use of descriptive writing to help the reader visualise our recount. 

MATHS: We are continuing our multiplicative thinking program. Students are working in ability based groupings to strengthen their understanding in number and to solve multiplication problems.

UNIT OF STUDY: We have begun our new unit of study 'Curiosity - Why Oh Why?' The students have explored the idea of a 'Wonderland' and have investigated the amazing powers of the brain!

E-learning: The Year 5/6 students have created a tagzedo about Curiosity. The Year 6 students have continued to earn their digital licenses for safe internet use.
